|I received a complimentary copy of Confessions of a So-Called Middle Child for the purpose of this review.|
Maria T. Lennon captures the essence of the middle school years with this book that openly and honestly explores bullying, peer pressure, social struggles and self-centeredness, while encouraging positive virtues like compassion, standing for what is right and self confidence. Confessions of a So-Called Middle Child also provides a look into the typical struggles of being a middle child, often with charming and hysterical accuracy. Anyone who reads this book will enjoy very much following Charlie's journey especially with her conflicted inner dialogue and wit.
Confessions of a So-Called Middle Child is listed as part of Harper Collins Publishers Stop Bullying, Start Reading campaign, which offers an extensive list of books that address bullying in meaningful and relatable contexts. I would definitely agree that this book does not only address bullying head on but also helps former bullies to tap into their compassionate side by developing a sensitivity for those who are bullied.
